Madder Than An Old Wet Hen

Hello My Lovelies.

It's me...Pemberley.

I've hijacked the human lady's blog.


I've been fixin' to do this for years.

Please come sit down here next to me.

Do you have some nice scratches for behind my ears and maybe a few chin rubs for me?  I need some consoling after what I've been through.  Do you have any treats that you can share with me?  Pretty please?  I'm hungry.

I'm going to tell you a tale all 'bout what's been goin' on around here for the last month.

Just in case you forgot, 'She Who Thinks She Knows EVERYTHING' put me on a diet.

Diet...   Schmi-et.

What does that mean?  

I've had NO treats.  Seriously.  NO treats.  At all.

I've been limited to 1/4 cup food portions.

She's been chasing me up and down this house with every toy, string, and mouse.  It's 'exercise', she says.

I call it torture. 

I just want to lounge about like this...all....day.  Is that too much to ask?

Let's get down to brass tacks here my dahlings: what are the results of this so called 'diet'?

Here I am weighing in this morning:
Starting Weight: 12.8 lbs
Today's weight: 13.2 lbs
Now don't that just frost my berries!  Sigh.

Those extra pounds are doin' nothin' for my figure.  I may be fluffy, but I'm not that fluffy.

I wonder if my secret admirer has noticed my fuller figure?  Double sigh.

I'm going to go lay in the sun and have a good think about this.  As you know, us cats are solar-powered.
What should I do to lose these extra pounds?


  1. Get a fur cut. That'll make you look 5 pounds slimmer!

  2. Awww... I think you're pretty just the way you are! My boyfriend's cat is 19 pounds, but I swear she looks bigger. Just be happy that you're not 19 pounds. :)

  3. Pemberley, You're beautiful. Your human just wants to make sure you're around for a lot longer. The End.

  4. Oh Pemberley... You are a breath of fresh air!! :)

  5. Awww, Pemberley, it's for your health dahling. Certainly not your appearance because you're gorg. I think the Human Lady needs to take you to Zumba with her. *grin*

  6. You can always go to Fat Camp for Cats: http://abcnews.go.com/Health/video/fat-camp-cats-13003873

  7. ohh poor kitty :)...Im not sure how you are willing to lay on the scale like that. You can try rocking back on your heels..it sometimes will give you a pound or so loss :)

    Keep up the 1/4 cup servings. the weight will shift eventually.


  8. Ah the trials and tribulations of diets. Maybe the scale will move soon. :)

  9. Oh poor, sweet Pemberley. You're beautiful just as you are, but I understand your desire to lose a few ounces. Do they make a kitty-sized lap band?

  10. Oh little pemberly, we have all been there. You are so adorable but your mom is right...it would be healthier to drop a few . Keep up the good work.

  11. Oh what a gorgeous bundle you are! Now Pemberley, be honest. Have you been having a cheeky nibble with some neighbours?

    Otherwise my only suggestion relates to another unmentionable subject, your age. Once us little purr-balls hit about 7, you break down food differently, just like humans do once they get a bit older and you may need to find a different food to help you on your way.

    Hope that helps.

  12. Perhaps you are worried about the coming winter and are 'insulating' a little early this year? Or maybe you need to have your teeth cleaned? My babies vet says that they will lose weight faster with clean teeth...however all of my canine babies are STILL chunky little monkeys.

  13. LOVE this post. As a matter of fact, I turned the computer around for my daughter to see. She loves her cat. Immediately, she paused the tv and said, "let me go get my little kitty"! lol

  14. If you figure it out, Pemberly, let me know? Marley is porking up, too.
